The fourth Newman Numismatic Portal (NNP) Symposium, a three-day virtual numismatic event, is scheduled for April 8-10.
Launched in August 2020, the NNP Symposium combines a diverse selection of numismatic presentations into a concentrated Zoom-based format. Previous symposia featured talks on U.S. federal coinage, tokens and medals, paper money and ancient and world numismatics, including Canadian topics. Each of the nearly 100 past presentations is freely available for viewing on the NNP website at bit.ly/3puZVqG.
“It’s a good opportunity for those who cannot travel to an American Numismatic Association convention or a major show where presentations may be held,” NNP officials quoted one anonymous symposium attendee as saying.
Officials are inviting individual presenters and numismatic organizations to register for a meeting slot at the upcoming event at nnpsymposium.org/for-presenters.
Dealers are welcome to participate and might use this time to introduce their business or present selected inventory highlights. Aside from presenters, attendees should register at nnpsymposium.org to receive schedule updates and meeting links.
Registration remains free as part of the NNP philosophy of providing numismatic information on a “free-and-forever basis,” according to the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, which funds the NNP and its annual symposium.
